6 of the Best – Kambi’s Mattias Eriksson

This week’s 6 of the Best gives the readers on SBC News an insight into the life of Mattias Eriksson, the newly appointed Chief Product Officer at Kambi.

Keep reading to find out more about Eriksson, formerly Director of Business Development and Innovation at Svenska Spel, including which album changed his “exploration of music”, and what book he describes as lifelike in its “logical irrationality”.

Best Holiday

Can we just agree on how unfair these questions are? It’s like picking which one of your children is your favourite.

Having said that, probably visiting friends in Delhi a few years ago – we got an insider’s look into life in one of the most dynamic cities I ever had the chance to visit! The people are incredible!

Best Album

Stevie Wonder’s ‘Songs in the key of life’ is an astonishing accomplishment. I didn’t spend serious time with it until I was in my mid-twenties, but it fundamentally changed the trajectory of my exploration of music.

Best Film

Too many to mention, but Dr Strangelove comes to mind. Sign of the times we live in, perhaps.

Best Sporting Experience

I was in the stands for Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s 30-yard bicycle-kick goal against England in 2012. And then, of course, anytime my hometown ice hockey team Skellefteå AIK plays in the Swedish top division.

Best Book

Joseph Heller’s ‘Catch-22’. Its logical irrationality is both highly entertaining and slightly annoying – a bit like life really.

Best App

Twitter, I’m a politics junkie – enough said. At work, I couldn’t function without the Calendar. Strike that, I wouldn’t function at all.
